Dale,

The scheme that is called Light does not seem very light to me.  I see
that it has more contrast than the Dark theme, but it still uses a
dark background and dark window titles. Overall, it still looks like a
dark theme to me, albeit one with more contrast. Maybe the name is
misleading?

When I think about a typical light theme, I think of a light colored
background with dark text.  For example, the editor that is showing in
one of the screenshots is using the GTK theme Clearlooks (I
think). That is a light theme because it uses white and light gray
backgrounds, black text, and color for accents.

It might be nice to have a true light theme for people who like those.
Apparently, a lot of people like them. Or it might suffice to change
the name of the existing second theme? I guess I would vote for more
difference between the two themes.

Some ideas to take or leave, no need to change anything on my account.

Phil
